I am always interested in the history of other people because history is always so much more interesting when it is told by a person whose family was a part of the history. It is distracting when someone feels they have to point out why someone else's history has flaws or their history is inconsequential because other people don't agree. Glad I didn't post about one of my relatives who came back from the Civil War at age 16. He married the college dean's daughter and was a successful professor at the college and throughout Virginia. The college was Roanoke and I think it later became VMI. I have a newspaper clipping of him sitting in a chair with a Native American standing beside him. The subject of the article was about the first Indian admitted to the college. I think some people would have had a field day with the political correctness of the article, i.e. 16 year old warmonger, white privilege, political insensitive as to the man standing identified as an Indian, why was he standing while the professor was sitting. I guess I could google as to how the professor, Joseph Godfrey Swartz is identified today. If you can't discuss history as it was written back then, you would have history books with titles but blank pages. Not directed at you Larry.
